Liddle’s Loan Deal Extended

Gary Liddle, Hartlepool United

Gary Liddle’s loan deal from Walsall has now been extended and the defender will remain at Victoria Park for the rest of the season.

The 33-year-old returned to The Vic on loan just before Christmas and has been an ever-present in the National League since then, making eight appearances.

Pools boss Dave Challinor has been pleased with Liddle’s performances at the heart of the defence and a deal has now been confirmed for him to stay at The Vic for the remainder of the campaign.
